On the 1st of April, by a nice stroke of luck, Caroline and Pierre Bécot bought this fine property in the Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion appellation. Their wish was to remain in the Saint-Emilion region, where their family and their father Dominique, co-owner of 1er Grand Cru Classé Beau-Séjour Bécot, had been settled for a long time.
Located on the plateau of Puisseguin, the terroir is among the appellation’s finest: clay-limestone soils planted almost exclusively with Merlot. The wine is crafted with finite care, in the ultimate goal of creating a true jewel of this appellation. Château Roc de Bécot is a silky-smooth wine of great elegance, laden with delicious fruit and impressively long on the finish.
Bordeaux red pleasure, well-rounded , sweet with a nice material with a velvety mouthfeel.
Dominique, Caroline et Pierre Bécot.
On the plateau of Puisseguin (5km from Saint-Emilion).
95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.

A Jewel in the Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion Appellation
Château Roc de Bécot is a jewel in the Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion crown, dominated by red fruits and revealing generous body. Enticingly delicious fruit offers lingering flavours on the palate.
